Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Ok I started using enlightenment which I like quite a bit, now I want to use thunar with it, however can't locate any packages, and when I compiled it I've gotten some errors when trying to run it:
"thunar: symbol lookup error: /usr/local/lib/libthunar-vfs-1.so.2: undefined symbol: exo_mount_point_free"
Ok so I went to linuxpackages and got the packages it listed and ended up getting this now:
process 1973: D-Bus library appears to be incorrectly set up; failed to read machine uuid: Failed to open "/var/lib/dbus/machine-id": No such file or directory
See the manual page for dbus-uuidgen to correct this issue.
D-Bus not built with -rdynamic so unable to print a backtrace
so I'm now searching to see whats up with dbus
edit: figured it out had to the following: dbus-uuidgen --ensure
thunar is running now thanks!

You'll need the updated dbus packages also. I updated to xfce4.4 last week and my Thunar works great with the packages from linuxpackages.net. Just gotta make sure all the dependencies are updated as well.
